Mother Knows Brunch: Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed Idea

Thinking hard about what to get/do for mom with Mother's Day coming up? This year, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, May 13th...Hopefully, it'll be a warm & sunny affair--perfect to do something nice for your mom/ mother figure in your life!

Pancakes no matter the occasion are just fun! One way to personalize your mom's brunch or breakfast in bed is to make the pancake{s} look like her!

My Pancakes:

  • Dark Chocolate Morsels for 'hair' 
  • Strawberries sliced thin for 'eyes' and 'lips'
  • Blueberry 'eyeballs'
  • Mini marshmallows for 'teeth' {cut in half} & 'pearl necklace'
  • Brown sugar/cinnamon for 'blush' 
  • I used a Betty Crocker pancake mix!  

LOL notice the chocolate chips for the hair...if your mom has lighter/blonde hair you can always substitute the chocolate chips for shredded coconut flakes. 

Hopefully, this Mother's Day brunch set up inspires you to create/cook-up something sweet for your mom!

P.S. I know mine will be reading this--Happy Mother's Day 💋💛 to you & all the moms!
